As you might appreciate, the site is no doubt under a heavy load tonight with all the changes.

403 is a security configuration error, not a server load error.

On a different note, not to be critical of LMA, because I assume LMA is not responsible, but I think everyone who submitted audience tapes should ask that they be removed completely.

The SBDs have always presumably been the property of The Grateful Dead.

The audience tapes were made under the policy that tapers were allowed to make, reproduce and distribute them FREELY. So the tapes are really the property of the original tapers and are to be traded FREELY as long as no money exchanges hands.

The streaming format basically violates this policy by preventing the free TRADE of the audio content of the original tapes. Tapers Unite!

First, would it be a positive act for a taper to take away what does remain for the patrons here, in the heat of emotion? I'd hope any Dead audio taper has the years of maturity to look at this from the larger perspective of fan enjoyment.

Second, there are many trading-oriented sites across the net, but IA is not actually one of them. It's an online public library. Any band's policy with respect to the Internet Archive may differ a lot from their policy with respect to trading. Current example: Dave Matthews Band. Example: Phish. Example: Galactic. This is another one of those cases.

If you are getting a 403, please give us the URL.

We have having website troubles today as you all have noticed. We are not sure what the problem is, but it could be related to the Grateful Dead changes. We are working hard to put it together with folks that are on vacation and all.

Thank you for the patience.

We believe we have the website at full speed again. (it seems it was fixed by optimizing and maybe uncorrupting an sql table).

Please let us know if there are continued problems.

Forum: etree Subject: can I see some hits graphs?

Is there public data on website hits / unique hits that www.archive.org or it's subdivisions receive? (i.e. www.archive.org/audio) ?

I'm curious because we have public charts for users added per day, number of recordings added per day / month, all that .. I was just curious with today's (i'm sure) flood of GD related hits .. i'm just a number junkie. can I see some bandwidth / hit graphs?

You're so forthcoming when it comes to technical problems with the site. Why can't you be so forthcoming when it comes to political problems? Are you afraid of getting sued?

Thats one of the first thoughts I had as well. I've been a dead-head forever and I just discovered this archive a couple weeks ago. I got all excited, asked a couple dozen internet friends "Are you into the Grateful Dead?" and they all said "no, not really". I asked "have you listened to much Dead?" and again, "no, not really". So I passed them a link to the classic performance of "Eyes Of The World" (3-29-1990) and said "here, listen to this". Every one of them (without exception) was totally blown away and every one of them asked whether that was really Grateful Dead. They all wanted more, so I said "ok, I'll compile a handful of links to some nice sample performances". I had just barely compiled a quick list and sent it along to a few of them yesterday. Within an hour they were telling me the links didn't work. Well, I guess we know why the links didn't work.

There's a new generation of potential dead-heads out there and they have internet access. The loss of this archive is a very bad business decision. If I were holding stock in this "company" I'd be selling as soon and the market opens today. (Yeah, I know, the Grateful Dead isn't a publicly traded company)

Many thanks and kudos to Brewster, Matt Vernon and any other players in the construction of this archive. I only wish I had found it sooner.
